Dwight Howard is going through a lot after death of baby mother, Danny Green says

Dwight Howard

Dwight Howard has been showing ambivalence towards playing in the NBA’s resumed season in Orlando and has still not given the Los Angeles Lakers an official answer yet about his status.

Beyond just societal issues, Howard is having family issues, one teammate says.

Danny Green was on his “Inside the Green Room” show and talked about Howard’s situation.

“I talked to Dwight, and there are just some things that are bigger than basketball. You never know what’s going on with guys’ families. Just hearing in the background what Dwight’s going through, I understood fully. There’s more than one thing going on in his life beyond the protests … the loss of his baby mother, but there’s lots going on that people don’t know about,” Green said.

Melissa Rios, the mother of Howard’s 6-year-old son, died in late March due to a fatal epileptic seizure.

Howard has five children by five women and has more going on even beyond Rios’ death, according to Green.

A recent report said the Lakers felt Howard would still participate in the restarted season next month.
